I just received this instrument yesterday. The action is spot on for me right out of the box with no fret buzz. The tone is better than expected and the coil taps are great. The sound quality is comparable to my Gibson Les Paul Studio. My only complaint is that the frets are not polished, they are somewhat rough. But for a guitar of this caliber under $500 I'll buy a Dremel tool and polishing wheels. I'm still giving five stars because the price can't be beat.

For the first-time buyer, this has the advantages of being light weight, good-looking, and adequate function. Most beginners run a cheap amp at high gain & have no real use for electronics beyond a pickup switch & a volume knob, making this as good a starter guitar as any & better-looking than many. Those with an ear for tone quality will find themselves wishing for better; playing one of these will help you determine if that includes you.
Believe it or not, I bought this guitar *after* owning a genuine Gibson SG (sold because its neck felt like a log). In that respect, the Epi Pro was better than that Gibson. In other respects, it is equal: light weight, easy to play. And I did like the idea of the coil-split feature ... until I heard it. You see, actual single-coil pickups don't have to be anemic, but splitting HB's isn't the same as using a Fender or P90s. A different (thinner) sound, which sounds lesser compared to the un-split setting.
To state the obvious, this is a low-budget guitar. Electronics are functional but not delightful; that would cost more. The tone pots are not really useful, the pickup sound is just OK, even when not split. Upper-fret access is amazing, assuming you'll go there. Shoulder fatigue can still happen, but you'll never stop marveling at how easy it is to wave around like a rock star. And you wouldn't be getting this if you didn't want to be a rock star, so go ahead and get one. You'll upgrade later if you need to, and you'll be glad you didn't spend more if you don't.

      Comments about Epiphone G-400 PRO Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

      The guitar is fantastic and the stock pickups sound really nice until you utilize the coil tapping option, and you lose about half of your volume. The bridge was also on backwards and one of the tone knobs was on crooked. Otherwise, absolutely no complaints. I absolutely adore this guitar.

      Comments about Epiphone G-400 PRO Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

      You get what you pay for. A cheap lefty guitar, when options are limited. However, it is useable, and has a surprisingly nice tone. Poor setup from the factory, they just put the strings on. Expect that you will have to have the nut slots filed to the proper height (~20 dol). I did the rest of the setup myself--adjust neck, optimize string height, intonation, etc. Poor craftsmanship/attention to detail includes: poorly cut nut (high E slot too wide, but was shallow enough to go deep and work around it); a slight high spot on the neck (slight string height and neck adjustment fixed); nickel plating on the stop bar missing on a small spot (have to check with company for replacement); a chip on the lacquer on the butt end of the neck facing the pickups (no choice but to live with that). I like the option/sound of the coil split for the pickups. However, surprised at how noisy they are in split-coil mode. At the very least, I expected both pickups in split mode to cancel the buzz (as with a Strat position 2 and 4), however, these pickups don't cancel in the middle position. Seems like they should, but I am not versed in split coil wiring yet. Stock pickups are surprisingly decent. I would normally upgrade pickups, but I'm leaving these in for a while. Paint job really good on this guitar, and the tuners feel precise, though appear a bit cheap. Overall, I didn't expect much for the price, but it is a serviceable instrument for a lefty.

        Fantastic Looks and Sound

        By Alan Muzzy

        from Edmonds,, WA

        Comments about Epiphone G-400 PRO Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

        A complete newb, I picked up this left-hand G-400 PRO from Guitar Center because I wanted something different from my 3 kids' LP, Tele, and Strat. I'm very pleased with the feel of the guitar - lighter than the LP but nice tone. SGs being neck heavy, the PRO really benefits from the lightweight tuners. The new pickups put out great sound. Like I said, a compete newb but I am really enjoying learning to play on this instrument.

          Comments about Epiphone G-400 PRO Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

          I have the right-handed version by the way. Well so far the guitar has exceeded my expectations, the coil tap feature gives the guitarist various tonal options that will surely fit whatever genre you intend to play. At the price range this guitar belongs, this guitar's pretty hard to beat! I haven't gigged or recorded using with it yet, but it would absolutely withstand gigging and studio playing. I have gigged with an Ibanez GAX30 and an Epiphone G-310 and never had any issues with them so I am sure this guitar would perform better than the two. Neck diving should not be much of an issue anymore since they have replaced their tuners with Wilkinson Vintage ones rather than the heavier Grover Tuners(like what my Epiphone G-310 has). I have a demo using this guitar, check it out if you have the time! Cheers!

            This guitar is great! The tone is amazing, I like the fact that the humbuckers are coil tapped. The set up is spot on right out of the box. The only upgrade I would recommend is install a pair of Schaller Strap Locks, especially considering the awkward position of the top strap button on a SG. The dual cut outs are great for reaching the higher frets. Except for the fact that it says Epiphone on the headstock I would never know that I'm not playing a Gibson SG.
